Pistachio Cranberry Chocolate Oat Bites!!

Updated: Mar 30, 2021


OMG!! These pistachio cranberry oat bites are my favorite! They are the perfect combination of sweet, salty, chewy, and crunchy. They are the perfect healthy treat to grab on the go and are packed with oats, pistachios, dried cranberries, flaxseed, and Krispies. This healthy treat is packed with protein, fiber, nutrients, antioxidants, and omega-3 fats! This is by far a favorite treat for my kids, so I always keep a batch in the refrigerator for them to pack in school lunches or to grab on the go.


Prep time: 8 minutes Refrigerate for 25 minutes

Ingredients:

-1 cup quick rolled oats (can substitute GF oats)

-1 cup Rice Krispies (can substitute GF krispies)

-1/2 cup pistachios (chopped)

-1/4 cup dried cranberries (chopped)

-2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

-1/4 cup peanut butter

-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

-2 1/2 tablespoons honey

-1/2 teaspoon vanilla

-1/8 teaspoon salt

-3/4 cup dark chocolate chips.

Next Step:

-On the stovetop, add the oats, flaxseed, and pistachios to a pan and heat on low. Stir for 4-5 minutes to lightly toast the oats and pistachios. (Make sure not to burn them)

-Take off the heat and add to a large bowl.

-In the same pan, add the peanut butter, maple syrup, honey, vanilla, and salt. Heat on low until creamy. It should only take a minute or two.

-Add 1 cup of Rice Krispies and the cranberries to the oat mixture and then pour the peanut butter mixture on top and mix to combine.

-Lightly butter a mini muffin pan.

-Fill each muffin tin to the top with the mixture. Then press down on each one to pack the mixture. *This step is important, otherwise it will be crumbly.*

-In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate chips in 25 second increments, stirring frequently.

-Add a heaping teaspoon of the melted chocolate on top of each pistachio/cranberry oat mixture.

-Chop up a few extra pistachios and sprinkle on top.

-Put in the refrigerator to set for 30 minutes.

-Gently take out each pistachio cranberry oat bite.

-Serve and ENJOY!!

*Store in the refrigerator when not eating.

I made these but nowhere in directions did it tell you to add the cranberries so I forgot them .The bottom is very crumbly and falls apart when removing from pan but besides that they tasted delicious.Maybe needs more liquid to hold them together as when putting in pan it didn't hold together well.

Hi, I am glad you enjoyed them! Did you press down the mixture when you added it to the mini muffin pan? I find if I skip that step they are more crumbly. You can also add another tablespoon of honey next time and that should help. :) Have a great day! Jess
